(How to save money on your prescription
$4 Prescription Drugs
The United States allows companies to
maintain patents on prescription medications far
longer than any other country. This is just one
of the ways that the government creates a
regressive tax base that punishes the poor and
middle class to maintain a bloated government.
Subsidies for programs like the Medicare
Prescription Drug program are unfunded and
amount to corporate welfare since the laws
artificially inflate the cost of medications on
one hand and on the other create a program that
radically increases the market size of people
that are buying those medications. One of the
ways to work around this corruption is to know
where to shop. $4 prescription drugs are available at most large box stores, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger/Fred Meyer/QFC, Target, K-Mart and others now offer a list of the most commonly prescribed prescription medications for $4 a month and in some cases $10 for a 90 day supply. Mostly this is leveraged off of Wal-Mart's list which you can see here
